If superb steak is what you’re after, The Blockman is well worth a visit. They offer a large variety of exceptional quality meat and the fillet must be the most tender I’ve ever had! I also really like what they have done decor wise, it’s a beautiful space. One tip would be to ask for a table outside if you prefer something a little less noisy.

Came here for a simple steak. Ended up having the greatest solo date I’ve had in a while. Zamani was my waiter, him and Anthony the manager made sure I had a full glass of Villafonte and that my steak was cooked to perfection. Had the 700g T Bone with Braai Bread and Green Beans. Perfectly cooked, great service. I will definitely be back!

We went twice on our trip to SA! Absolutely stunning food and impeccable service, our waiter was so lovely and took lots of photos for us of our family birthday celebration. Everyone had such a good time! We had the best sparkling wine we’ve ever tasted and even me as a vegetarian found a lot of delicious things on the menu.

I had such high hopes for this places as I usually go to The Butcher Shop. I’ll stick to my original choice. I thought the meat quality was exceptional based on the display. I ordered medium rare, it was medium. They insisted to fixing it … meat was cold in the middle and rare. They do not know how to prepare medium rare, not medium rare … just go to the Butcher Shop or Marble. The waitress wasn’t as warm in the beginning but she picked up her pace and did better then disappeared. Took food home and said I’ll just prepare at home but come to think of it the quality of the meat wasn’t that great. I still tipped well but felt bad that we added wrong but the waitress caught up with us. Happy we were able to tip her properly. I’m a strong believer in that. Just don’t go here if you know your meat well.

I ordered chicken. No taste of chicken, only mayonnaise . Different color mayonnaise, not sure why they call it chicken? Call it mayonnaise.......They say that it is served with a salad. It is not a salad, it is oily deep fried "something"on a salad leaves which are soked in oil. Terrible!!! Very expensive, not worth it. Do not recommend.

I haven’t been in SA for a while and being at the Blockman for my first meal was just the South African experience I had so missed. The food was great service was great and the prices were reasonable. We celebrated my daughters birthday and they set up really nicely for us. It was a pleasure.

Best steak in Johannesburg by far, probably in the whole country! Had a "Blockman Cut" sirloin. Delicious! Perfectly cooked. Great service. Definitely get the sommelier to pair a wine(s) for you. We have been back several times, always a fantastic experience.

DINED WITH A FRIEND Chose a classic hamburger. Arrived cold. Most expensive ever. Patty was put back on the grill and arrived well done when medium was ordered. Patty was well under weight for a steakhouse of its purported high standard. Manager checked with owner who offered a compensation of a desert to SHARE between the two of us which we declined. Had complimentary coffees instead.

High quality dinner, in an elegant restaurant. Superior quality cuts of meat, expertly prepared. Our daughter had the risotto, which was also excellently prepared. Professional staff. One of the best dinners had in South Africa. Highly recommended.
